Welcome from the Head of School


Dear OPS Families: 


I cannot begin to relay how excited I am to embark on year two as the Head of Schools for Orangeburg Preparatory Schools, Inc.  Coming off of a very successful 2017 – 2018 school year, the graduating Class of 2018 help set standards that were tradition filled and set benchmarks for our underclassmen to aspire to!  The 2018 – 2019 school year has proved to follow a similar avenue of success and will yield a tremendous return for our families.  It is most impressive as our seniors are making their college decisions and receiving their acceptance packets!  These acceptances will include a myriad of colleges both in South Carolina and across the Southeastern United States.    


It is an exciting time to be an Indian!  The OPS faculty has and is working diligently to best prepare all students as they complete their journey at Orangeburg Preparatory Schools!  Whether it is competing in the athletic arena, participating in extra-curricular academic activities through the South Carolina Independent School Association, or experiencing positive day-to-day interactions, our students are receiving an experience that is unparalleled. 


I would like to take an opportunity to WELCOME everyone to Orangeburg Preparatory Schools and thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate your child.  We will continue to make positive strides in all facets of the school and are very excited as you have joined us on this most important journey. 


Thank You & Welcome Home!  GO INDIANS!
